For starters, you can just create classes like KonquerorBookmarks,
Firefox3Bookmarks etc. with some common abstract interface like
   getFolders(const QString path)
   getBookmarks(const QString path)
(or similar)

then just create a
   QList < QString > pluginNames;
   QHash < QString, GenericBookmarkReader * > readers;
 which you'd fill when a user requests some bookmarks.

Apropos Marco's question about the default browser's bookmarks. If you
don't want to have only one browser in the engine, it would be rather
nifty to have a 'default:/path' provider which would use one of the
ff/konq/opera/... bookmark readers.

So, for example, you'd have
default:/blahblah (the same as konqueror:/blahblah)

BTW, maybe it would be better to name it kde or kdebookmarks instead
of konqueror, since rekonq (IIRC) uses the same.

Cheerio and welcome to Plasma :)
